Outgoing Public Security Minister Avi Dichter bid farewell to the police on Monday, and delivered a farewell speech in which he encouraged police "to fear nothing but the law." "Don't let minor or veteran politicians intimidate you. The Israel Police deals with the most painful and aggravating issues in the country, since every citizen can encounter the police in different situations," Dichter said.
